The project was organised in the form of a two-week international workshop, conducted as a so-called LLP Erasmus Intensive Programme for students in architecture and urban design. It was carried out in the years 2009-2012 by Cracow Univeristy of Technology and university partners, ie. Technical University of Delft (prof. Marc Schoonderbeek, prof. Micha de Haas and arch. Eelco Dekker), University of Applied Sciences and Arts – HAWK Hildesheim (prof. Michael Sprysch, arch. Thomas Kauertz, prof. Michael Wagner) and University of Applied Sciences – HTW Dresden (prof. Angela Mensing-de Jong, prof. Cornelius Scherzer).

The workshops concerned the cities, which were heavily experienced during the Second World War, including: Oswiecim (2009), Rotterdam (2011) and Dresden (2012). The program was attended by a total number of 124 students from Poland, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, Greece, Turkey and South Korea, Singapore, China and Iran.

Among the criteria of EDUinspiracje award the jury considered not only the program realization, but most of all the elements that contributed to its results dissemination and sustainability. The continuation of the program was highly appreciated, including the common workshops conducted by the former partner institutions. An important element appreciated by the jury were also scientific publications resulting from the program and further scientific and didactic cooperation of the partners.
Joint activities carried out by the partners since 2013 concerned cities with the joint Polish-German past – as it was in case of workshops in Wroclaw in 2012, and in Görlitz / Zgorzelec in 2013 coordinated by University of Applied Sciences and Arts – HAWK Hildesheim and Cracow University of Technology. University of Applied Sciences – HTW Dresden in cooperation with the Land of Saxony-Anhalt and Kopetenzzentrum Stadumbau engaged Technical University of Delft, Cracow University of Technology and new partners – University of Chalmers in Goettebors and University of Gent in the program aiming at limiting the process of depopulation of cities with difficult, political, post-war history, organizing workshops in Schierke in 2013 and Halle-Neustadt in 2014. The successes included also organized in March 2013 at the Faculty of Architecture International Seminar on the “Role of International Design Workshops in the Process of Architectural Education” – the chairman of which was Assoc.
